Fudge ( To Cover & Filled Cakes)




I extract this recipe from my good old book "Que Cocinare hoy?" de Nicolini, with only 1 change, instead of only 6 Tbsp of Cocoa, I used 12. Use it in your next chocolate cake adventure, this fudge is great on old fashion cakes, and specially in German Chocolate Cake, Rolled Cake; also if you keep it a bit runnier you can drizzle over ice-cream.

“For my kids, the recipe is in the Nicolini Book, the book that your mama and many other mamas had learned to cook and bake with. There is no Culinary School that overpasses the classics and this cake is one of those. In all the birthdays, those where your house is full with neighbors and cousins, they need it to be a Chocolate Cake. I will make you later the one that my mom used to make for me, because even so I loved this Chocolate Cake, it was not the one I asked for."
 "Today is April 12th 2014, I am having fun with my son, we are making an Old Fashion Chocolate Cake, he is an awesome helper. Doing Cakes just for fun sometimes is nice. Here is a picture of the cake made with my son's help; and another of my son waiting to eat the cake. It used to be me !!! waiting for my mom's cakes. My sisters and me used to fight the spoon, the bowl, and the cake pan; and of course the cake.”
